Self-Confessed! The Inappropriately Intimate Comics of Alison Bechdel

WHEN: September 1 - December 30

This exhibition explores Vermont artist Bechdel’s work as a writer, an artist, and an archivist of the self who continually mines and shares her own experiences in order to communicate something vitally human: the quest for love, acceptance, community, and social justice.
